Chocolate Truffles


2 cups 500 mL semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup 60 mL butter
1/2 cup 125 mL whipping cream


  1. Put the ingredients in a bowl or large measuring cup.
  2. Microwave the ingredients until the butter melts and the chocolate chips become soft enough that you can mush them with a spoon. Chocolate chips don't lose their shapes with heat, so you will have to stir them occasionally as a test.
  3. Mix the ingredients thoroughly.
  4. Pour and/or spoon the truffles into moulds. These can be miniature muffin cups in trays. You can also use the plastic supports that some chocolates come in, if they are about the right size and shape.
  5. Sprinkle the toppings on the truffles. I like to find several kinds and do a few truffles with each. Possible toppings include shredded coconut, chopped nuts, and sprinkles.
  6. Leave the truffles on the counter to cool. It will be some hours before the grow hard again.
